trying to wrap my head around the mass shooting that happened in oregon earlier this week. when i saw this morning that this had happened, i sunk in my chair. you really cannot do justice to what these kids and what these teachers have just experienced." in the classroom where colin goddard was shot at virginia tech, there were 17 people in that classroom. only seven of them survived. two dozen kids were shot and wounded in a high school cafeteria in springfield, oregon in 1998. 1998. the police chief there now, who was a first responder that horrible day at that oregon high school 14 years ago said today about newtown, "i know that there is going to be a lot of emotion in that community." he said," in addition to the victims and the families in newtown, that his heart goes out to the police and the emergency services personnel that responded to deal with this, because this is going to take a toll on a lot of people." beth nimmo whose daughter was killed in the columbine high school mass shooting, she said today, "as far as the parents go, they're not going to know what hit them for a
expired. the chair recognizes the gentleman from oregon, mr. blumenauer, for five minutes. mr. blumenauer: the mall shooting that might have been worse and ended in newtown, connecticut, where it's impossible to imagine that it was worse. it's part of an ongoing pattern of carnage because we lose one life to gun violence every 20 minutes, every hour, every day. the mass murders reclaiming my time page gets the country's attention, but the same total loss of life at sandy hook happens more than twice every day all year long. this is personal for me, not just because the mall shooter was in my district, but i had a high school friend who was killed with a random freak drive-by shooting, my brother took his life with a handgun as a young man. i supported gun provisions at the state and federal level at every opportunity. it might be different now. not just because the horrific image of parade of funerals for children, i submit mayor bloomberg's advocacy for gun safety and mayors who brare the brunt of the gun violence. i welcome the president's leadership and will support any reform that he
christmas wreaths from oregon. as brook discovered, has quite a story to tell us. brook, the story is powerful. it's a symptom, a symbol of what has going on here. you and i have walked around this town. people just want to show some emotion. >> it's pretty incredible. it's been difficult to talk to some of the first responders. you can see it in their eyes what they saw but they don't exactly want to share it and we're respecting it. i happened upon the town square where i see box after box and i said, what are you delivering, hanging up, and it was a wreath, 26 wreaths from a perfect stranger, a wreath from across the country in portland, oregon. here's what he shared with me. how many wreaths are there? >> 26. >> did they get sent to the firehouse? >> sent to the firehouse through u.p.s. >> did you know they were coming? >> no, no, they were -- the truck pulled up and she says, i have a delivery. we unloaded them all and we figured we'd come up with a place to put them, try to keep them all together. got shipped all the way from oregon. >> how long have you been here? >> since f

. >> whether it's the searing images from newtown, connecticut, the panic at a mall in portland, oregon, on tuesday, when two holiday shoppers were killed by a single shooter or mass murder as sikh temple in wisconsin in august, they can't begin to explain the loss. >> the statistic provide cold comfort for what happened today. if you look at an event like today you think we have got a problem. we have to do something. whatever you do, you need to make sure that it's something that, you know, is going to be effective. >> while the worst school shooting in history remains virginia feck in 2007 where 32 were gunned down bay student the recent crime dated from the justice department that runs through 2008 shows that multiple victim homicides in this country are rare. with less than 1% of the crimes involving five or more victims. >> gun homicide by individuals in the late teens and early 20s like the virginia tech gunman and friday's aed shoot rer down. according to federal data, gun homicides by persons between 18 and 24 peaked at 8600 in 1993 and dropped to half that by 2008. >> law enfo
or steal them from a steal, such as in oregon earlier this week. >> reporter: and of course, as we come to understand, clint, in some context, exactly, what the motivation might have been. and you can talk to people who may have been through any of these shootings. they do want to know why. but it doesn't change anything or bring their loved ones back. but is there any information that we ought to know from this that will help us going forward? >> well, there is no test that i know of, chris, that we can give to somebody or differentiate, the next person who will be the next mass murderer. psychologists believe we can identify children who are at risk. and we can do that many times in grade school. i mean, i have always been an advocate of having counselors, mental health professionals, to help children when they're in grade schools to start the develop conflict resolution skills that are not built on violence like they see on television. >> but can i add to this very importantly, when you hear a report that this man may have had asperger syndrome. i worry about all the people who now t
is. and i believe these tragedies have taken place in nevada, in oregon, and wisconsin are waking america up. and we're looking at this issue now, and we want action. >> okay, thank you so much, chief johnson. larry johnson, thank you, sir, for joining us as well, and thank you cliff van zandt. and chris jansing, my colleague at msnbc. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz picks up msnbc's continuing coverage of the sandy hook elementary school shooting right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. there are tragedies in life that shake our souls and break our hearts. today the nation experienced one of those tragedies. every american will struggle to come to grips with what happened today in a small community in connecticut. sandy hook elementary school in the small community of about 27,000 residents was the site of a shooting rampage. at this hour we know 26 people at the school were shot and killed by a lone gunman. 20 of those deceased were children. surviving students and their parents said te
in oregon earlier this week. you know, when i saw on twitter this morning that this had happened, i sunk in my chair, you know. you really can't do justice to what these kids and what these teachers have just experienced the violence, the intensity, the sadness. this is not something that should be normal in our country. this is not something that other countries experience like we do. today is the day for sympathy. today is the day to be with your loved ones to tell people who you're close to how much they mean to you, you know. we have to think about what we're going to do after today, what we're going to do between now and the next major shooting that happens. our decision makers think this is something they can't influence, this is something they think they can't do anything about. the majority of us don't want to see these things continue to happen and live in a country like this. we need to let them know that we want to live in a better country than this. we want -- that we're better than this. you know? it's -- it kills me every time i see this. i try to put it towards more motiva
place earlier this week in portland, oregon, shooter dressed in all block with a semiautomatic weapon. today we're told the shooter, one more time, dressed in black, maybe with a load bearing vest that would allow him to carry more magazines. part of what we have to get into is do these guys see themselves as some type of commando or something? what commando goes after kids? goes after little kids? and as -- >> does that lend some kind of moral authority to the horrific actions, the wearing of a uniform of some kind? >> it may go along with some type of fantasy we have. you said wrap your arms around it. i have been trying to do that all day. how can anyone in their right mind or wrong mind justify the killing of children -- >> let's go to profile questions. the person shows up with two semiautomatic pistols have that 15 rounds each. so they're ready to shoot a lot of people. so it's hard to believe one thing led to another. the initial intent was to do a lot of horror. >> and when we're told over 100 rounds have been fired, do the math. that means about four or five magazines per wea
they empower themselves, whether it be a few days ago in portland, oregon, or aurora, colorado, they put on an outfit, i'm going to call it a costume, because they're playing a different character, they're going in there and they don't view these children or the adults as human beings, they view them as the enemy, as people who have wronged them for whatever reason and they're going to seek revenge. unfortunately, this guy created tremendous, tremendous tragedy. >> but how could someone look at children, innocent children of this age as being the enemy? >> because, they don't look at it as a child. they look at it as they can take control of the situation, and they can start killing people and that's all they think about. i understand what you're saying. one thing to shoot 30-year-old document, it's another thing to shoot a 7-year-old. but they don't care. they have completely lost their touch, their empathy, their caring for anyone. it's all about me, it's all about me getting my feelings out. that's really what's gone on with these shooters. you got somebody older, most schoolteachers

home, a soccer tournament in delaware and a mall in oregon. 85 people died in those 14 incidents. many of them make news for a day or two. then they fade. although some incidents are big enough to prompt action a little bit. after the virginia tech massacre, we learned the gunman's history showed he had treated for mental issues for years. in response, then governor tom cain signed new mental health reform into law giving the sate more latitude to commit mentally ill people who pose a danger and commenting $42 million to the state's facility. two years later, the state found no increase in the number of people committed and multiple cuts to the funding. earlier this year, in colorado, an attack exposed how easy it is to purchase ammunition online. the shooter wag able to bypass federal background checks and buy 3,000 rounds for a pair of glock handguns and 300 shotgun shells, a bullet proof vest and a high capacity magazine, all of its over the internet. because holmes had a clean record, the purchases were completely legal. the aurora shooting brought back influence of hollywood and t

our children. the violence we see spreading from shopping malls in oregon to movie theaters in colorado to college campuses in virginia to elementary schools in connecticut. it's being spawned by the toxic brew of a violent popular culture, a growing mental health crisis, and the proliferation of combat-styled weapons. though entrenched special interests are going to try to muddy the cause in the coming days, the cause of this sickening mass shooting like the others is no longer a mystery to common-sense americans, and blessedly, there are more common-sense americans than there are special interests, even if it doesn't always seem that way. i say good luck to the gun lobbyist. good luck to the hollywood lawyer who tries to blunt the righteous anger of millions of parents by hiding behind twisted readings of our bill of rights. our government rightly obsesses day and night on how to prevent the next 9/11 from being launched from a cave in afghanistan or a training base in yemen, but perhaps, just perhaps, now is the time they start obsessing on how to stop the next attack on
in a mall crowded with christmas shoppers outside of portland, oregon, yesterday. investigators say 22-year-old jacob tyler roberts acted alone when he allegedly squeezed off at least 20 shots, sending thousands of shoppers running for their lives. we're also hearing police dispatch audio from those horrifying moments. >> just confirming you said an active shooter? >> yeah, there's one person that's saying that there's a man with the rifle near the food court and he's still shooting people. >> we're out here on foot and there are people bailing out like crazy from everywhere. >> cnn's kyung lah is outside of the clackamas town center, and that's what you were just hearing about on that audio recording. kyung, we're piecing together all of this information, bit by bit, including that the gunman officially tried to flee in the middle of all of this volley of gunfire, and that he was also yelling out to witnesses, that he was the shooter. but what are we finding out about maybe the most important element, motive. why did this happen? >> reporter: it's very, very difficult to know right now. po
